Planning Alumnus Cathy Brown, MCP '06, has published a feature article in the May issues of Urban Land, entitled Lithuania's Capital City Goes Modern. In the article, Brown explains, "breaking with a history of Polish, German, and Soviet rule, Vilnius, Lithuania, is affirming its present and planning its future as the city strives to become the most modern in central and eastern Europe and an international center of politics, business, science, and culture.
